Secondary Initial Teacher Education Chemistry with Science with QTS PGCE

UK

9

What will I learn?

Introduction

This is a strand of the PGCE Science course where you will specialise in Chemistry. Students who successfully complete this route will be in a strong position to gain employment as teachers of Chemistry and general science to KS4.

The PGCE course has been designed to train teachers to practise as a subject specialist teacher for the secondary age range (11-16). Trainees are assessed against the standards for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) across the age range. Trainees will also often gain experience of the 16-18 age range, although they will not be formally assessed in this phase.

The course is active and practical, allowing trainees to develop professional competence through work undertaken in schools and in the University. Trainees work with young people, develop their expertise in their specialist subject area, share and discuss educational issues and study relevant educational research. The course is just the beginning of what we hope will be a process of continual professional development throughout a challenging and rewarding career.

Once you have been offered a place on a PGCE Secondary Science course you will have an opportunity to boost your subject knowledge in Chemistry with one of our Subject KnowledgeEnhancement (SKE) courses before starting your PGCE.
